Some parents might also have received their application results directly from the school, such as letters that the South African College High Schools (SACS) sent out.
"Thank you to you and your son for the interest you have shown in applying to the South African College High School (SACS) for Grade 8, 2023. I regret to inform you that your application has been unsuccessful. We received over 1 000 applications for our Grade 8 class. It is with great regret that we are unable to accept more candidates," some of the letters read.
